Yes, I go to school at Eastern!! I have the stock stereo, however, I plan on upgrading to a stereo with a sub preamp output. I don't have the subwoofer or anything yet.
What are you wanting to achieve?
Predominate music you listen to?
I ask because i would hate to recommend an ultra low distortion sub and you want to listen to rap and shake the neighborhood and the flip side I recommend a high output configuration and you want in car flat response for the low octaves of a string bass.
Bass in a car is the ultimate in ease. If you want a compromise, something that sounds good and yet moves air then I can recommend that as well.
